yesterday i watched 《华丽上班族之生活于生存》, written by and starring 张艾嘉 and 郑元畅。 i would be lying if i said 郑元畅 din't influence my decision in any way at all :p  definitely the idea of getting to watch 张艾嘉 perform in the flesh piqued my interest, but 郑元畅 definitely sealed the deal lolz.  the storyline isn't anything spectacular, essentially chronicling how a strong-willed career-driven woman climbs her way to the top by hook or by crook and the sacrifices she makes, and makes of others, along the way. at the end tho, i won't deny it gave me a few chills cuz even tho i'm not really ambitious, it is possible to see myself in a position years down the road, fairly senior but wondering wat u gave up for it.  life doesn't end at 40, hey?

the set and the sound was amazing tho, and tat's wat left the greatest impression on me, apart from 张艾嘉's amazing stage presence - playing the central role of winnie the ceo, u dun realise how petite she is until she comes out with the rest of the cast to take her final bow.  as the boss, she really did seem to tower over the rest :)  and 郑元畅 was better than i thot - his role as tat of a himbo so totally suits him and he's very adorable like tat.  the casting was a definite stroke of brilliance, showcasing actors tat can pull in a wide range of audience.  and the thing i liked best was tat it was so much funnier than i expected.

definitely an enjoyable evening ^___^
